Why is Nuno Bettencourt not on here?

Still a phenomenal player and one of the first to add funk-like rhythm playing to technicality.

Not to put words in anyone's mouths, but I think most other posters here would have said the same thing.

I don't know, they're often listed as a funk metal band and the very little material I've heard from them sounds a bit like a less-weird Faith No More.

I've universally heard them referred to as hard rock.

Definitely hair metal, but I don't think he should be penalized for the band he was in. I mean hell, Jeff Porcaro is often considered one of the greatest session drummers of all time, and we don't exclude him for Toto.

He shouldn't be excluded from a metal guitarist list just because he wasn't a metal guitarist?

How is he not a metal guitarist? Extreme is hair metal.

Even this message board agrees.

Hair metal isn't a genre, it's slang for a scene.

It's similar to the arguments about Vai in that while he has played some metal, I don't think he's played enough of it to be eligible for the list.

I honestly don't care too much whether he goes on the list or not (even though he is a fantastic guitarist) but here you go.

Coupling the technical proficiency of Bettencourt's guitar with a funky rhythmic base, the band issued a self-titled debut album in 1989. It peaked at number 80 -- a modest showing for a new, unseasoned band -- and the song "Play with Me" was used to orchestrate the chase scene during Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Extreme had begun to earn respect in the heavy metal world, but it wasn't until the arrival of the band's follow-up effort, Pornograffitti (particularly the the Everly Brothers-style acoustic ballad "More Than Words"), that a mainstream audience latched onto the group's sound... (AMG)

EDIT - However, they aren't listed as metal on metal-archives, which is the site I use for questionable hard rockbands, so my vote is to keep him off just to be consistent.

I think you put more than words in our mouths.
